Not bad

We were a party of 6 / got there just before early evening rush, we were seated within 5 minutes. Server was good, food to table time was slow. The food portions were good... The blueberry pie was excellent. It's an old bldg., used to be a bus stop... interesting artifacts inside.

This place was promoted in tourist material as a must try. I also had this as a recommendation from a prior resident. We started with some fried pickles which was a WOW. Huge portion and good. The main course was very disappointing for anything called smoke food. it was dry and lacked flavor (including smoke). Between my son and I... More

They have great chicken fingers and veggies! I do not care for their bbq, but I am picky! I also think it is a little pricy for the food.

This is a great time of the year to eat at Country's, because they feature locally grown produce. I love the vegetable plate. My husband prefers the pork platter with outside meat, finely chopped. He learned how to order his meat, which he considers the best, after asking a server. Country's iced tea is the best in the South, and... More

If you're looking for some great BBQ this is the place for you! My husband loves the ribs and I am a big fan of the pork tenderloin. We try to visit whenever we are in Columbus. This past visit I had the opportunity to enjoy the perfect baked sweet potato. It was so perfect, there was no need for... More

I come for their Brunswick stew (I get two servings), but their BBQ beef and pork is delicious too. I eat here twice a week when I am in town. I never miss it.

Love Country's. Yes, it may be crowded. You may not get the quickest service, but the service will always be friendly, guaranteed. Personally, I love the Brunswick stew here more than any other BBQ place. The chipped pork plate is awesome. If you like chicken, the BBQ chicken is very good also. The chocolate chess pie is so good that... More

We started with fried pickles. Yum! Everyone in our party enjoyed the BBQ (pork, beef and ribs). The sweet potato casserole was delicious. Great butter beans, cabbage and cornbread! We were by the Riverwalk and the resturaunt was charming! Huge servings!
